On Friday, May 24,
the eighth grade will be taking an educational field trip to the Milwaukee
County courthouse and the IMAX. At the
courthouse, we will meet Judge Carolina Stark, a former Oostburg student and
current Milwaukee County Judge. She will
explain the work she does for the Judicial Branch of government. She is also allowing us to observe her courtroom
proceedings. After the courthouse, we
will be going to the IMAX to watch Wildest Weather in the Solar System. The cost of this fieldtrip will be $15.00. We will also be stopping for lunch at
McDonald’s in Mequon; students will need to bring money for lunch or their own
lunch from home. We do not stop for lunch until 1:00pm, so please make sure that your
son or daughter eats breakfast that morning.
On Friday, June 7, the eighth grade is going to
Great America. We will be leaving school
at 8:00am and returning to school at 7:00pm. Please make sure you make arrangements to have your child picked up
at 7:00pm. The students will
need to bring a bag lunch or money for lunch to be eaten at Great America. We will not be stopping for supper, so
students may want to bring extra money for park food later in the day or they
may want to bring snacks for the ride home.
Please return the permission slip below signed with the money for both field trips – $40.00 – no
later than Friday, May 10. Make checks
payable to Oostburg Middle School. If
your son or daughter is only attending the educational field trip to Milwaukee the
cost of the field trip is $15.00. If
your son or daughter is only going to Great America, the cost is $31.00.
